A sweet day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s a lovers holiday that is either loved or dreaded.

Dominated by the color of red and pink, hearts, flowers and chocolates, red has always been the color of love for me. Red is hot, red is fierce and well, somewhat dominating. Red demands attention as it draws all eyes to be fixed on you and you just can’t avoid getting noticed. The pop of color stands out against all others and requires the right amount of confidence and sass. And a red lip on top of hit seals the deal and you are unstoppable. I think confidence is attractive and beautiful, a great quality when kept in the right proportions. Far far away from arrogance and ignorance which are deal breakers in my book.  

I heard people say that red does not look good on them and I agree that red is probably not as easy to wear as most other colors. On the other hand and when it comes to me, people have always complimented me when I wear red. Perhaps it has to do with my complexion, color of hair or having enough confidence to wear it. I’m not sure and I don’t analyze it, I just like to wear it. 

I had a date with the Tooth-Fairy today and in honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided to make a little surprise for her and her wonderful staff. Tiramisu…in the form of my first Mason Jar Project. It turned out delicious and I will definitely do it again even though it requires a bit of work. It was mostly due to the presentation I had chosen which included lots of red and hearts. I think it was a hit and today was a sweet day as I got to deliver my sweet treat. And yes you guessed right and I did get to wear red today 😉



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. Wow, looks beautiful and sure tastes delicious, my friend. I’d give an arm and a leg for one of those, instead I have the “not so nice” Holiday Inn Express breakfast ahead…lol…..about Valentine, there is a third possibility besides lovin’ or dreadin’ it…you can completely ignore it. I bring home flowers twice a month and I don’t need valentine for it 😉 my “bessere Hälfte” thinks the same…so no valentine 🙂

    1. Thank you very much, no arm and leg required and all you have to do is to stop by with your “bessere Hälfte” and I’ll be happy to make one for the both of you 😉.
      You are absolutely right with your thoughts about Valentine and I don’t need a holiday either to celebrate as everyday can be valentines of you don’t take things and life for granted. Good for you 👍🏼 I love it
